Supreme Court writer switches genres

hotseat-lithwickCharlottesvillian Dahlia Lithwick,'s Supreme Court chronicler, is using her nearly month-long paid sabbatical to try her hand at an entirely different genre– chick lit. Can she finish her entire first novel by October 1– just three weeks away? Chapters– and Lithwick's ongoing frame of mind– will be posted daily at Slate.


Winston, I've never noticed that. Can you provide an example or two?

Shouldn't be too hard; most of what she writes already is fiction.
